Editorial Reviews

Julian Paul Assange is an Australian journalist, publisher and Internet activist. Best known as the spokesperson and editor in chief for WikiLeaks, a whistleblower website. He has lived in several countries and is constantly on the move. Making irregular public appearances to speak about freedom of the press and censorship. In doing so winning three journalism awards for his work with WikiLeaks. We all think we know who Julian Assange is or stands for or do we? This revealing 3 hours of in depth footage gives you the chance to decide the truth for yourself. Is he our modern day internet guru or simply a man of the people?

5.0 out of 5 stars Julian Assange: A Modern Day Hero? June 21, 2011
The answer to the title of this film, "Julian Assange: A Modern Day Hero?," is still a work in progress. There is no doubt that Assange and his WikiLeaks website have profoundly affected the world, and I think that apparently for the good. But the use of the information provided by the website still hasn't reached its potential. "Julian Assange: A Modern Day Hero?" is an incredibly informative and engaging documentary that will give the viewer enough information about Assange and his purpose in life.

The film is divided into eight chapters, each one opening with the line "courage is contagious." In part one, Assange gives a brief description of what WikiLeaks is all about: support transparency and produce positive political reform, a message that we will hear, in different ways, during the entirety of the film. The second part begins one month after Bradley Manning, a United States Army soldier (some say intelligence analyst), was sent to prison for passing restricted information to WikiLeaks, and putting Assange on the run for the potential publishing of the leaked documents on his website. There is footage of Assange meeting with representatives of The Guardian, The New York Times, and Der Spiegel, the three newspapers that agreed to publish the documents. It also shows Assange giving conferences and interviews before the material was published and the world knew about it. Part Three deals with the anticipated moment, when 92,000 were released by WikiLeaks and the three chosen newspapers. These documents covered a 6-year period of the war in Afghanistan, and Assange talks about them. Part four, of course, focus on the impact of the release on the press and the world. Inevitable comparisons about this leakage are made with that of the Pentagon papers by Daniel Ellsberg in 1971.

5.0 out of 5 stars An important document in a suspicious time June 12, 2011
The most valuable aspect of this documentary, or rather series of documents, is that it provides a perspective on Assange and Wikileaks that you will most likely NOT be hearing through the mainstream media anytime soon. And that is quite a service. And I suppose that is the whole point of the Wikileaks website. While we are awash in information, data, bytes and whatnot, it's frightening how desperate people are for this canned information we call news. Having worked in news myself to a minor degree, I understand the pressures and temptations. I'm not sure I would back 100% of what Julian Assange has done. But I would certainly want to live in a world of with Assange than in one without him. For the other side of the story I recommend this.

I'm giving it five stars for what it is doing in allowing Assange to speak for himself. If I was rating purely on film quality I would knock it done to at least four stars. Obviously this hasn't been assembled by big time professionals. The image isn't always crisp. Many sources have been cobbled together. But the value of the material outweighs it's production defects. Besides the 90 minutes of documentary, there are also two entire in context speeches. This is primary source material on an important development in 21st Century communications and events.
